Forestry and Climate Change - contents list

Front coverBook that explores how forests will interact with the physical and natural world, and with human society as the climate changes. Also considered is how the world's forests can be managed to contribute to the mitigation of climate change and to maximize the full range of economic and non-market benefits.

Edited by Peter Freer-Smith, Mark Broadmeadow and Jim Lynch of Forest Research.
